God’s Selective Memory

by Skip Heitzig

I once read that we don’t really forget anything. Everything we see, do, read, or hear is seared into our hard drive. Well, having it in the hard drive is one thing; recall is quite another. We forget people’s names; we forget our promises. We also forget God. How easy it is to go through the day and get so busy with the world around us that we forget God gave us breath and saved us from our sins. Forgetting is typically thought of as a human attribute, but there is something even God said He forgets.


In Jeremiah 31, Jeremiah prophesied how God would bring Israel a Savior and establish a new covenant with them: “I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more” (Jer. 31:33-34).


In this text, God promised that He would forget. That’s a bit unnerving. It sounds irreverent because God is omniscient; He knows everything (see 1 John 3:20). So when we talk about God forgetting, we need to lay down a few ground rules.


First of all, God doesn’t forget to maintain His creation. The Bible says concerning Jesus, “In Him all things consist” or are held together (Col. 1:17). He lavishes the earth with sunshine and rainfall. He opens the doors of heaven, so to speak, and lets the sun out in the morning and parks it inside in the evening. God keeps all of that going. There are a hundred billion stars in the Milky Way galaxy, but scientists tell us there are billions and billions of galaxies beyond that. God doesn’t forget that.
Second, God doesn’t forget His children. Like I talked about last week, Jesus said, “If God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?” (Matt. 6:30). If God does indeed maintain His universe, He won’t forget His children.

Listen to this beautiful promise: “Can a woman forget her nursing child, and not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surely they may forget, yet I will not forget you” (Isa. 49:15). Even though it’s possible for a woman to neglect her own child—in some tragic cases, it happens—God said, “I will not forget you.” To Him, you’re not some number or face in a crowd. You’re an individual. It could be that friends and family have forgotten you—but God will not forget you.


Third, God doesn’t forget His promise. Specifically, He promises to save for eternity anyone who calls on Him through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.


So then, what is the one thing God said He forgets? It is your sin. It is my sin. I want your heart to lay hold of that truth. When I say, “God forgets,” it’s not an accidental act of forgiving; it’s a purposeful choice of not remembering. Do you know why? Because Jesus Christ did such a good job of washing away your sin that there’s no stain left. There’s nothing left to remind God of it. Jesus “was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him” (Isa. 53:5). God has chosen not to remember our sins because of what Jesus did. God’s selective memory is one of our greatest benefits. Let’s rejoice in that today!  I hope that you have a Simply Heavenly day!!!  God bless you!!!

Living with Purpose

When he came and had seen the grace of God, he was glad, and encouraged them all that with purpose of heart they should continue with the Lord. —Acts 11:23


If you were asked to complete the sentence “My purpose of life is …” what would you say? As Christians, I know we would quickly say, “God.” But let’s be honest and not just say what we think is the right thing to say. What really is your purpose in life?


To put it another way, where do you channel most of your energy? What do you think about the most? What is the most significant thing to you in life?


Some people, if they answered honestly, would say, “My purpose in life is to have fun.” Someone else might say, “My purpose in life is to experience pleasure.” Another might say, “My purpose in life is to be successful.” Another might say, “My purpose in life is to make money.”


The book of Acts tells us that when Barnabas came to Antioch, he exhorted the believers there “that with purpose of heart they should continue with the Lord” (Acts 11:23). And Paul said, “[For my determined purpose is] that I may know Him [that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His Person more strongly and more clearly]” (Philippians 3:10, amp).

Paul knew where he was going. And if you don’t know where you are going, then you won’t know whether you get there. Paul was essentially saying, “My purpose in life is to know Him. Yes, there are other things that I do, but my primary purpose is to intimately, deeply, and personally know God.”


Is that your purpose in life right now?  I hope you have a Simply Heavenly day!!!  God bless you!!!

Tonight I Pray that you get a real hunger for the Word of God so that you won’t be deceived by churches that just want to tickle your ears and not preach the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  I pray that as you grow closer to the Lord through His Word that you will be able to have HIS eyes and discern the wolves in sheep’s clothing from genuine shepherds who preach the Word of God.  I pray that as you dwell more in the Word that the Holy Spirit will lead you where He wants you to be, realizing that He goes before you and also beside you, so that you are never alone. I pray that HIS Peace be with you as you rest in Him.  Allow it to settle over you and enfold you in His loving Presence!!!  Jesus love is the same Yesterday , Today and Forever!!!  Walk in the warm light of HIS Great Love!!!  In Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen!!!  I Love You All!!!  God bless you!!!! ♥♥♥ http://dlvr.it/6lDyBj

Standing Strong

Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong.  —1 Corinthians 16:13


There will come times in all of our lives when we will be tested in our faith. There will be times when what we believe will be challenged. There will be temptations to do the wrong thing.


We might ask ourselves, Will I be able to stand strong spiritually when this happens? That is entirely up to you. It isn’t up to God. It is up to you. God wants you to stand, but He will not force you to stand. He will give you all the resources you need. He will give you the power to resist. He will even give you a way out. But you have to cooperate. There are some things only God can do. And there are some things only you can do.


Only God can forgive sin. But only you can fall into sin. Only God can give you the power to change your life. But you need to be willing to have your life changed. You need to cooperate with Him. He is not going to force you to resist what is evil. You have to be willing to resist it on your own, then take hold of the resources that He gives you. You decide today whether or not you will fall tomorrow. The stand you make today will determine what kind of stand you make tomorrow.


When you are building a house, the most important time is not when you lay carpet or paint; it’s when you lay the foundation. If you don’t do that well, then all of your decorative additions will be for nothing. You have to get the foundation right.


Therefore, you determine today what kind of situation you will be in tomorrow. I love this devotional today and I hope you did as well.  Have a Simply Heavenly day!!!  God bless you!!!

No Place for Islands

by Charles R. Swindoll

Now we who are strong ought to bear the weaknesses of those without strength and not just please ourselves. Each of us is to please his neighbor for his good, to his edification. For even Christ did not please Himself; but as it is written, “The reproaches of those who reproached You fell on Me.” For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.  Now may the God who gives perseverance and encouragement grant you to be of the same mind with one another according to Christ Jesus, so that with one accord you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.Therefore, accept one another, just as Christ also accepted us to the glory of God.Romans 15:1-7


Nobody is a whole chain. Each one is a link. But take away one link and the chain is broken.Nobody is a whole team. Each one is a player. But take away one player and the game is forfeited.Nobody is a whole orchestra. Each one is a musician. But take away one musician and the symphony is incomplete.Nobody is a whole play. Each one is an actor. But take away one actor and the performance suffers.Nobody is a whole hospital. Each one is a part of the staff. But take away one person and it isn’t long before the patient can tell.


Cars are composed of numerous parts. Each one is connected to and dependent upon the other. Even if a tiny screw comes loose and falls out of the carburetor, it can bring the whole vehicle to a stop.
You guessed it. We need each other. You need someone and someone needs you. Isolated islands we’re not. To make this thing called life work, we gotta lean and support. And relate and respond. And give and take. And confess and forgive. And reach out and embrace. And release and rely.


Especially in God’s family … where working together is Plan A for survival. And since we’re so different (thanks to the way God built us), love and acceptance are not optional luxuries. Neither is tolerance. Or understanding. Or patience. You know all those things you need from others when your humanity crowds out your divinity.
In other words:


Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other. Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the Lord enthusiastically. Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying. When God’s people are in need, be ready to help them. Always be eager to practice hospitality. (Romans 12:10-13 NLT)
Why? Because each one of us is worth it. Even when we don’t act like it or feel like it or deserve it.


Since none of us is a whole, independent, self-sufficient, supercapable, all-powerful hotshot, let’s quit acting like we are. Life’s lonely enough without our playing that silly role.


The game’s over. Let’s link up. I hope you have a Simply Heavenly day.  God bless you!!!

Tonight I Pray that you find your peace in HIS Presence when looking for refreshment. When you are resting in the Lord never worry about being idle, when you are resting in the Lord Jesus you are demonstrating your trust in Him. As you trust in Him your faith will grow. I pray that you get a great hunger for His Word so that you can grow strong as a child of God and become sensitive to His Voice. In these last days as you grow tired of this world don’t turn away from Him. Instead I pray that you draw even closer to Jesus. Lean on Him and let Him support you through your weakness. For when you are weak He is strong!!! He will help you to cope with whatever is before you. This is His way to HIS Peace. In Jesus name I Pray, Amen and Amen… I Love You All!!!!

Healthy Fear


The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; a good understanding have all those who do His commandments. His praise endures forever.—Psalm 111:10


We all know what it is like to be gripped by fear. We all know what the sensation is like to have a shiver run down our spines, our mouths go dry, and our hair stand on end.


Fear has a close buddy known as worry, and the two often work in tandem. We can get caught up playing the what-if game: What if this happens? What if that happens? In fact, modern medical research has proved that worry can actually break down our resistance to disease—and even shorten our lives. Charles Mayo, founder of the famed Mayo Clinic, said that while he never knew anyone who died of overwork, he knew many who died of worry.


Far too often we are afraid of the wrong things in life, but we aren’t afraid of the right things—or perhaps I should say the right One. We don’t fear God. Yet the Bible tells us the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.


But what does that mean? First, let me tell you what it doesn’t mean. To fear God doesn’t mean cowering in terror before Him. Rather, the fear of God has been properly defined as a wholesome dread of displeasing Him. So if I have sinned, it is not the fear of what God will do to me but the fear of what I have done to Him. That is what it is to fear the Lord.
The remarkable thing about fearing God is that when you fear Him, you fear nothing else. On the other hand, if you don’t fear God, then you fear everything else.  I like this devotional from Pastor Greg.  I hope you have a Simply Heavenly day!!!  God bless you!!!

Labels

by Charles R. Swindoll

He who speaks truth tells what is right,But a false witness, deceit.There is one who speaks rashly like the thrusts of a sword,But the tongue of the wise brings healing.Truthful lips will be established forever,But a lying tongue is only for a moment.Deceit is in the heart of those who devise evil,But counselors of peace have joy.No harm befalls the righteous,But the wicked are filled with trouble.Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord,But those who deal faithfully are His delight.A prudent man conceals knowledge,But the heart of fools proclaims folly.Proverbs 12:17-23


Let’s Label. That’s a favorite parlor game among Christians. The rules are easy to remember. Any number can play. But it’s especially appealing to those who are given to oversimplification and making categorical comments. Name-droppers thrive on this game. And it helps if you speak with a measure of authority … looking somewhat pious and pronouncing your words very distinctly, very dogmatically. You’ll gain stature in the group if you look down and frown a little as you affix the label to the person in question.


Labels vary. There are “temperament” labels. “She’s a choleric, poor thing … married to a melancholic!”


These are akin to “emotional” labels. “Well, you know her—-she’s nervous” … or “He’s a classic neurotic, a perfectionist to the core.”
Of course, “doctrinal” labels are most popular among evangelicals. One guy is tagged a liberal, another neo-evangelical … and still others conservative—-with a host of in-between shades. If a person mentions the sovereignty of God too much, we label the jar Calvinist. If he seems uneasy regarding local church organization, Plymouth Brethren is the tag. If she’s convinced that God’s future program is clearly spelled out in Daniel and Revelation, we brand her premillenialist. If one thinks that the Bible sets forth distinct eras during which humanity’s relationship with God has unique characteristics, the label is dispensationalist, a sinister-sounding term very few people even understand! Another label that’s now on the scene is neo-fundamentalism … a title that includes basic tenets and life outlooks that, in the mind of the “labeler,” are unrelated to the fundamentals of the faith.


Now then, to be completely honest about it, it is occasionally helpful to lick a label and stick it on. It saves a bundle of time and it can communicate a fairly clear mental picture. However—-it is important that we guard against using a wrong label, thus damaging that individual’s true image or position in others’ eyes. That is the main danger in playing Let’s Label. It often means you set yourself up as judge and jury, declaring information that is exaggerated or thirdhand or just plain untrue. When that happens, we have stopped playing a game and started to slander.


Being alert and discerning, basing one’s opinion on the absolute truth, is a sign of maturity, a mark of excellence in a life. But pasting labels on people and churches and schools with only partial facts, feelings, and opinions to back those statements up is worse than unfair … it’s un-Christian.


The game needs another name … like, Let’s Judge.  This is a powerful devotional from Chuck Swindoll. I hope that you learned as much as I did.  Have a Simply Heavenly day!!!  God bless you!!!

Your Love Guard Me Through The Night….

TONIGHT I PRAY that you keep yourself open to the working of the Holy Spirit in your life.  Sometimes God will allow you to go through situations to draw out impurities in your character. Embrace what He’s doing so you can get to the next level in your spiritual journey. Sometimes when you are praying over and over and you don’t believe that your prayer has been answered, I pray that you just stop and be still.  Listen to the Holy Spirit within you.  Sometimes God removes a person in your life for your protection. Think about that before you go running after them. He gives us what we need so that we can grow into the men and women that He has planned for us to be.  I pray that you realize that His deepest desire for you is that you learn to depend on Him totally in every situation.  It is when you do that He will work with you and through you.  Use your freedom wisely, by relying on Him constantly.  In Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen….  I love you all!!!  God bless you!!! http://dlvr.it/6gkTnm
